Pittsburg, PA.It is very much the exception to have billheads with back printing. This billhead is one of those exceptions w/ reverse fully used for advertising and w/a street map showing the location of Jenkins business.This raises a 2nd very unusual point about this billhead. It is rare to find maps used. It makes sense and was a very practical feature to have, but it just was not done very often. Likely some of the explanation for this would have been the additional printing costs.On reverse, ad odd reference under the top title line in red:
